Ophelia plays in Burial Etiquette, which is how we came into contact. I was sent two songs for the upcoming 6-Way split 12" on Zegema Beach and was flabbergasted at the band's development and absolutely stellar set of jams. After which Ophelia showed me her solo project Opheliac, which is fucking amazing. Speaking of, To Be Gentle and Opheliac released a shoegaze collaboration song but a few mere hours ago and it, as expected, incredible (and linked here!!!). I spoke with Ophelia a week or two before this song dropped and had a helluva good time. Topics included: special effects makeup, where the hell is Thunder Bay?, New Friends Fest, playing with Karloff, dads like Pearl Jam, empathy for people who don't like screamo, the good MuchMusic shows, videogame music, Ping Pals...the game!!!, dad joke count, feeling the warmth of static, Life Aquatic, Anthony Green, living in South Korea, the upcoming Burial Etiquette 12"LP, supporting fellow female artists, showing your 80s colors followed by regrets, guest appearances from my kids, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Black Marble, Darkle, Guiltmaker, Makthaverskan, Nhomme, Quest Master, and The Advantage.
